Dear Student

By reading the question we can conclude that, perimeter of the square is same as perimeter of rectangle.
From the question it is given that,
Length of the rectangle = 40 cm
Breadth of the square = 22 cm
Then,
Perimeter of the rectangle = Perimeter of the Square
2 (Length + Breadth) = 4 × side
2 (40 + 22) = 4 × side
2 (62) = 4 × side
124 = 4 × side
Side = 124/4
Side = 31 cm
So, Area of the rectangle = (Length × Breadth)
= 40 × 22
= 880 cm^2
Area of square = side^2
= 312
= 31 × 31
= 961 cm^2
∴Square shaped wire encloses more area.

Thanks
